SYBA SY-PEX40039 Plug-in Card SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

5 out of 5 eggs Exellent product 01/11/2016

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 Plug-in Card SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: I installed this in an older sata 2 motherboard. First I installed it then restarted the PC, windows then installed the necessary updates. I shut down the PC and disconnected the sata cable from the motherboard and connected it to a port on the controller card. Restarted the PC and that was it. I now have a sata 3 running PC. Re-ran windows WEI and it went from a Disk Data rate transfer rate score of 7.5 to 7.9.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I believe some people who've rated this product low because of it not working didn't know how to install it correctly. The enclosed dvd download was not needed for windows 7 in my PC.

4 out of 5 eggs Not so bad 01/01/2016

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit

Pros: Very easy installation, hardly any updates after install. Will only use this OS for gaming rig for now. Needed to install Direct X manually since it's not included in updates. Seems to run very smoothly, and with intel 6700k (OC 4.5) , Z170X mobo and 980 ti hybred, it's a beast in gaming.

Cons: Although I'm using this for gaming, I still don't like the spyware. Had to do quite a bit to turn off most of it, one egg minus for that.

Other Thoughts: May have to eventually install this in my other PCs, but will wait until I can turn off all the spyware in this OS. If that is at all possible.

Pros: Very easy to install and dropped my temps 10c+.

Cons: Nothing really, the fans that came with it were a bit noisy. I swapped them out with another set and now it's a bit quieter.
